What we Get From Eating Red Meat
Red meat is a rich source of protein, saturated fat, iron, zinc and B vitamins. Iron is needed to help red blood cells transport oxygen.
We also get iron from dark green leafy plants, beans and grains but it is better absorbed by the body from eating red meat.
More Vitamins From Red Meat
Amongst the B vitamins we find in red meat are vitamin B6 and vitamin12. Vitamin B6 is extremely important in maintaining a healthy immune system and vitamin B12 aids the nervous system.
Red meat, as with anything, is best eaten in moderation. So, for instance, you shouldn’t eat steak every day. You should vary your fresh meat intake. Include fish in your diet where possible too.
